Artist's Description

The actual court house for Prairie County, Montana. This building was built around ten years ago when a fire damaged the rear of the original court house. A very nice young woman named Piney in the Clerk and Recorder’s Office directed me to the original.

Prairie County sits on the Yellowstone River (and I-94) in eastern Montana. The 2000 US Census counted 1,199 people living in the county, 24% of whom were over 65 years of age. This was the highest percentage of elderly residents in the state. By 2008, the estimated population had decreased 11.3% to 1064. The county covers 1736.55 square miles and has a population density of 7/10 of a person per square mile.

For photographers, Terry, and indeed Prairie County, is important as the home of the patron saint of Montana photographers, Evelyn Cameron, who moved to Prairie County from England in the late 1800s and spent the rest of her life as a ranch wife and photographer.

The county was created on February 5, 1915, and is county number 45 on Montana license plates.

Taken March 26,2010 in Terry, Montana.
